|Kay Sage - The Hidden Letter (1943)|
I have regrets. They are sacred to me.
They inform my character. They bear witness to my evolution.
Glimpses of lost love and treasure are held inside of them;
like small beautiful creatures suspended in amber.
Do not avoid your regrets. Do not discard them.
If you deny their existence, you cheapen your experience.
Embrace them. Listen to their stories.
Wrap them in tattered prayer flags and place them on the altar of your life.
Hold them to your heart when you want to remember the price you paid to become who you truly are.
-- Richard Power
